horockefeller city, the new york city still reeling from the effects of superstorm sandy and her landfall earlier this week. today, 2.5 million people remain without power and at least 40 new yorkers have died in the storms aftermath. almost half of those deaths were in just one of the burroughs that make up the five burroughs of new york, staten island. now, this striking image was captured by an nbc producer and staten island. sandy's wake left the debris in the backyard of john della rosa's severely smashed home. smashed plates mingled with halloween decorations. overwhelmed by the devastation, rocked by the power of the storm, he is left to pick up the pieces of the storm surge which sent more than 8 feet of water into the neighborhood. he is also left to grieve the losses of his next door neighbors, the foundation and stairs are all that remain of the dresh family home. george dresh and his 13-year-old daughter, angela died, when the storm surge came through their home. george's wife and angela's mother, patricia, remain in the hospital. that is one story of devastation wrought by th
the impact of superstorm sandy is hoboken, new jersey, right across the hudson river from here in manhattan. a city of about 50,000 people. and joining me on the phone is dawn zimmer who is the mayor of hoboken. thanks for being with us once again now. this is not highly unusual for hoboken to flood, but have you ever seen anything quite like what you're experiencing tonight? >> well, we've never seen anything quite like this where we have the city of hoboken breached by the hudson river on both sides of the city. the north and the south. and right now as we speak we have two firemen, you know, a fire company that is lit rerall having to row a boat. we got a call about a potential fire transformer on fire and fauling into a building. we're trying to check it out. we were hoping to get the national guard in here. unfortunately they haven't been able to make it up to hudson county and so we're doing the best that we can and hopefully, hopefully there's not a building on fire. we're waiting to find out, you know, and it's been a major challenge. we've got live wires down throughout the city. p
in the wake of superstorm sandy. look at this. it is what a return to normal looks like post-sandy this morning in new york and new jersey. massive gridlock. thousands upon thousands lining up, waiting for public transportation in certain spots. this new video taken within the last hour in brooklyn. all of these people hoping to board a bus to get into manhattan. on the highways into the city, police check points and hov restrictions in place. look at that line of cars. only cars with three people or more are allowed to cross bridges and tunnels on to the island. they just made an exception to that rule saying that black cars and taxis are exempt. however, these lines are stretching for miles upon miles. meanwhile, more staggering news on the terrible toll of this storm. more than 80 people now confirmed dead. damage estimates topping $60 billion and climbing. 5.6 million people remain without electricity. the national guard has been called into communities like hoboken, new jersey, where tens of thousands are reported stranded by still high flood waters. president obama will
, are maybe in for a little bit of sticker shock. superstorm sandy could hit them in the wallet. >> yeah, you know, it's an interesting one here. obviously here in the northeast, you know, we're all suffering from superstorm sandy. but you know what? in the weeks to come, even consumers as far away as the west coast could potentially -- particularly here in the market for a car because thousands of vehicles have been damaged here to the point where they really do need to be replaced and that could drive up prices of both new and used vehicles in the weeks and months ahead and also remember a lot of dealerships here in the northeast have sustained a lot of damage to their inventory, as well, to the cars that they had out on their lots. complicating matters, used vehicles have been in short supply because of declining sales of new vehicles. so the only thing i can find here, chris, in terms of a silver lining is if you are looking to trade in your car, you may potentially get a better price. back over to you. >> krn's mandy drury, thank you. >>> and as we wait for the president here in hilliard
, citing superstorm sandy, the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. mayor bloomberg wrote in part, the devastation brought to the area brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees climate change as a threat to our planet. the other does not. i want risk management above electoral politics. but the endorsement wasn't what we call in the business ringing. bloomberg, a republican turned independent who didn't back a candidate in 2008, took a swipe at the president in that endorsement writing, if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. like so many other independents, i found the past four years to be, in a word, disappointing. there's your endorsement. however, in the same op-ed the mayor slammed romney for walking away from his previously held positions on climate change, immigration, and health care. >>> in less than three hours from now, the labor department will release the final monthly jobs repor
. >>> tallying up the damage from superstorm sandy, cnbc's jackie deangeles is here with what's moving your money and even the initial numbers are staggering. >> reporter: that's exactly right. ihs global insight saying the superstorm could end up costing about $20 billion in property damage and $30 billion in lost business and those figures could be elevated when you account for flood damage as well. a lot of people don't have extra insurance for floods. meantime longer term the storm may not pack as much of a punch. some economists are saying slightly lower growth in the coming weeks will be offset by rebuilding and repair as we see a boom later on. keep in mind that some are going to be hurt more than others. for instance, restaurants. say you lost a few days of business, you probably aren't going to see a later benefit, chris. >> speaking of billions, george lucas is already in the, shall we say, filthy rich category but now i guess you could say he's about to become obsceny rich. >> reporter: sci-fi in other words ev-- nerds everywhere are excited. lucas will become disney's second largest i
's continuing coverage of superstorm sandy. we'll be live throughout the night and have reporters all across the region and msnbc meteorologist bill karins is on hand with us in new york. a quarter of a million of people without power are right here on the island of manhattan. and an emergency plan -- an emergency developed at new york university hospital on the east side of the city when that facility lost power forcing the evacuation of hundreds of patients just as the storm was at its most severe. rehema ellis is there covering it for the last several hours. what's the latest? >> reporter: chris, i can tell you it's an eerie scene where you go up to a hospital and there's just row after row of emergency vehicles of ambulances, they're not there dropping patients off for care, but they have lined up to pick up patients. more than 215 patients and transport them, evacuate them from the hospital to another facility. transporting them because as you say, they have lost power in this area. new york city's mayor michael bloomberg talked about there are massive power outages and flooding in the
and come back with more continuing coverage of the superstorm sandy on msnbc. what's next? he's going to apply testosterone to his underarm. axiron, the only underarm treatment for low t, can restore testosterone levels back to normal in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact.
by reed timmer. high winds and snow on the edges of superstorm sandy pass over the area. more than 200,000 in west virginia are in the cold and dark without power. early voting has been suspended in six west virginia counties. let's go once again to storm chaser reed timmer trapped in elkens. you were racing toward the scene last time. what's going on now? >> last time we talked we were heads into the storm, and we dieded we couldn't make both happen. we went after the blizzard, and this is one of the most interesting yet insane storms i've ever chased. it had the feel of a hurricane, but yet it was cold enough for snow. the snow was also really a very heavy, wet snow. all of trees are drooping down, and power lines are coming down everywhere, trees are snapping. it sounded like shotgun blasts going off. it was a weird night last night. >> i think a lot of people understand why it was an insane storms you've encountered but what makes it the most interesting? >> as a meteorologist it's a huge anomaly. a storm like this has never come together and regarded in u.s. history in the same wa
. superstorm sandy left a giant crater where the boardwalk's rides and attractions used to be. >>> meanwhile, electrical service is coming back online for the estimated 8 million people left in the dark. forecasting it, they think it will end up costing $20 billion in damage. now we'll send you back to "last word with lawrence o'donnell." >>> the captains of industry who run american automobile companies have a word for people like mitt romney -- liar. >>> and next, in the spotlight, mitt romney's campaign said they weren't holding any political events today, and then they held a political event. >>> and if the romney campaign was shut down today, what was john mccain doing in ohio attacking the president? karen finney and jonathan capehart will join me on that one, next. ah. fire bad! just have to fire roast these tomatoes. this is going to give you a head start on your dinner. that seems easier [ female announcer ] new progresso recipe starters. five delicious cooking sauces you combine with fresh ingredients to make amazing home-cooked meals.

, everybody. i'm lynn berry. here's what's happening. the death toll from the still active superstorm sandy has risen to 46 including 18 killed in new york city. officials say new york's jfk international airport will re-open with limited service at 7:00 wednesday morning. nearby laguardia airport will remain closed. >>> and the new york stock exchange and the nasdaq exchange will re-open for business today after two days with no trading. now we'll send you back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." campaigning for president obama today, former president bill clinton made the political link between hurricane sandy and manmade climate change when he referred to mitt romney's stance on climate change in the recent debate. this is gripping. let's listen. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. in my part of america, we would like it if someone could have done that yesterday. all up and down the east coast there are mayors, many of them republicans, w
and could go either way. we want to take you back to the aftermath of superstorm sandy. take a look at this, this is what president obama can expect to see when he visits the hard-hit area of atlantic city, new jersey, this afternoon. homes destroyed, boats tossed on their sides and parts of the iconic boardwalk completely damaged. at one point 85% of the city was submerged in water. joining me by phone is atlantic city's mayor, lorenzo langford. sir, git's good to have you her. your director of emergency management calls this the worst for atlantic city. the president is going to be in the city with you and governor christie around 1:00 this afternoon. what do you need to tell him about the immediate needs of the people there in your city? >> well, i think the first thing that we need to do is to get power restored as quickly as we can. you know, there's an old saying that pictures are better than words. and for the president to come to atlantic city, i am most appreciative. he will see for himself the devastation that has been wrecked on this city by sandy. but i'm happy to say that altho
of momentum. superstorm sandy hit and you feel that momentum gone and what you are seeing is barack obama is commander in chief. talking to the red cross. working with the army corps of engineers. so the president's handled all this this in a very astute way. it's lyndon johnson did a good job of hurricane betsy in 1975 and george w. bush was awful during hurricane katrina because he seemed cold, callous and indifferent. >> what do you make of the closeness of all of this to the election, as well? the time line, the time line. >> it's a bizarre event. in 1992, with hurricane andrew with george herbert walker bush beat up by democrats for not responding properly to that florida hurricane but that took place in august so people -- there's always some fallout. right now this is so close to the election there's not a downside for president obama. the complaints coming from the greater new york area will be in about two or three weeks with problems of mold or fema didn't do something correctly or the army corps arguing. but the president doesn't have to deal with that because they're in emerge
and the rain that was the initial storm. right now we are in the aftermath period of this superstorm, sandy. how do you feel in terms of dealing with the aftermath, describing those explosions, these ongoing worries. before we get to rebuilding, rescuing people, taking care of continuing damage right now. how would you assess the response and the coordination between the federal government, the state government, municipalities. how are we doing? >> i think we're doing very well. i mean, you heard the president, and i have to say that i think his response has been terrific, really. and it's been coordinated, unlike some of what happened in katrina. and you heard, you know, governor christie, who's a republican, with president obama, working together. and that's how it's been, from the president to the governor, all the way down to the county and the towns. so one of the things that i did today, in fact, i was just on the phone before i came in here, was talk to fema about trying to get an office and a staff person in various parts of the district that i viewed today, and they're working on i
>>> it's november 1st on "the cycle." it's been exactly 67 hours since superstorm sandy make landfall along the jersey shore. three days later, incredible signs of recovery. even more signs there's a long road ahead. >> i'm stove carneve kornacki. where is the money going to come from? >>> the storm has passed and both candidates are back on the trail. five days to go and the stakes couldn't be higher. >>> time toure. technology's come a long way since tim russert famously wrote florida, florida, florida. but what hasn't changed is the path to victory, making the sunshine state our state of the day. >> all that plus the image emblematic of what barack obama wanted from his presidency. it took four years and an act of god to get it. it's thursday and you're in "the cycle." >>> it's another day of slow progress as nearly two dozen states pick up the pieces from sandy. the death toll now stands at more than 80. also rising is the costs. now estimated at north of $60 billion. that's not hard to consider when you look at the incredible damage especially along the new jersey coastl
seismic events that could shift a very close race. first, the devastation from superstorm sandy, 22 states affected and millions without power and billions of dollars in damage. the other big number this week, 7.9%. that's the unemployment number from the final jobs report friday before the election. a slight tick up, yes, but it was actually a better than expected report. a net gain of 171,000 new jobs added last month. good political news for the president. if the labor participation rate was the same as it was during the president's first year in office, unemployment would be closer to 10%. today on the trail, very different spin from the same numbers. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. i know we're close to an election, but this isn't a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%. that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack ob
bloomberg, citing superstorm sandy. the independent mayor wrote an op-ed for bloomberg.com saying he'll vote for the president because of his record on climate change. and it reads in part this. "the devastation that hurricane sandy brought to new york city and much of the northeast brought the stakes of tuesday's presidential election into sharp relief. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." again mayor bloomberg on the edge of issues that really affect this country that people don't take seriously and then they find out too late. an endorsement, of course, from mayor michael bloomberg for president obama. that's great, right? >> it is a fine endorsement. jon meacham, you're an historian. have you heard of an endorsement of a candidate that goes on to read this way? if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. because like so many other independents, i have found the past four years to be, in
or more. >>> just four days until the election. four days since sandy made landfall. i'm toure. from the superstorm to the supercharged final jobs report. has either changed the race? >> i'm s.e. cupp. after two definitions and three debates, it's almost time to actually vote. where are the candidates spending their final hours and bha does it mean? we'll read the political tea leaves. >> fear turns to frustration for thousands of victims today. >> i'm krystal
to hurricane sandy. some updates for you. this superstorm that has much of the east coast literally on edge. we're learning that president obama will go into the briefing room at 12:45 p.m. eastern time. that news just coming out of the white house. one of the nation's busiest commuter railway stations in the country is a ghost town. it's been closed with commuter railroads shut down aalong with amtrak and new york city's transit system. we'll check in with jim cantore from lower manhattan where there have been evacuations and serious flooding expected. how are things looking down there, jim? >> reporter: well, you know, it's kind of interesting. as you look back at the hudson here, we've got water that is at 3.1 feet. that's our storm surge. during irene it was 4.4. we expect to double what we had in irene. that's the problem. that's what kicked in yesterday and that's why the mandatory evacuation order was kicked in. the storm is deep in low pressure, and we expect the wind field to push this water up through long island sound and just to give you an example. you can see what's going on here
. >> president obama there telling america what his priority is today. as the superstorm begins to impact the east coast with 90-mile-per-hour winds and heavy downpour, like it or not, sandy has an impact on this campaign already. president obama and governor romney have both canceled more than a dozen events in key swing states over the next several days. maryland and the nation's capital heavily democratic areas canceled early voting for today. a decision on tomorrow will be made depending on how bad this storm gets. some virginia counties have suspended in-person absentee voting, and the labor department announced the final jobs report before the election could be delayed. the october numbers are scheduled to come out friday. the bigger picture here, in a race this close we know turnout is key for both candidates. if folks don't have power and worried about their home, some worry getting to the pols won't be a top priority. who stands to gain the most from this tough situation? let's go to the table, and look, i've seen a bunch of stuff out today, the political science research which i
ahead. that's a little tease. the election day forecast coming up. we're getting rid of sandy the next couple of days. this superstorm still lingering over the top of buffalo. you've seen the pictures, heard the stories. the question now is where is it going to fall in history? the most extensive u.s. hurrica hurricanes estimated at $50 billion, billion, dollars. right around andrew and these numbers are taking into account inflation over the years from andrew in 1992. so this is one of the worst storms in our country's history as far as how much damage it has done. as far as the forecast, it is cold and chilly in the areas without power. we need that power on in a hurry. it's not going to warm up anytime soon as we head into november tomorrow. as far as the forecast today, a few showers out there especially northern new england. the rest of the holiday forecast does look quiet out there. the west coast does have some rain and showers we're dealing with. now i teased you with the election day forecast. this is kind of my first look ahead for it. as far as what we're dealing with, it lo
